“Great location for a honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

My wife and I just stayed at Cabanas Tulum for our honeymoon after having out wedding at Dreams Tulum. We hopped in a cab after checking out at Dreams and headed here. It was such a different change of pace from the big resort feel. They greeted us with champagne and rose pedals in the bedroom. The staff was very courteous and helpful and the rooms were kept very clean.
The room was big and beautiful with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The room was very quiet with concrete walls for privacy. Our room was on the ground floor so we would just step outside and be right on the beach. A couple of the nights we went for walks on the beach and there were several other similar smaller resorts like this one. None of them seemed even half as nice as the one we were staying in.
The food at the restaurant was excellent we would go every morning for breakfast which was included and we went a couple nights for dinner (I strongly recommend the Tuna Nachos.) The resort was close enough to the city of Tulum so we had adventured out into the city a few times to try some other places and check things out. We could get into town for 50 - 80 Pesos depending on who picked you up.
The resort was definitely relaxing and it was the perfect way to spend our honeymoon. If I had to do it over again I would not have done it any differently.

I couldn't have asked for more in a vacation. This is really a beautiful hotel with wonderful service and food. The breakfast is included and wonderful with a lot of options. The bar is very nice as well and even has a wonderful wine list.

Room Tip: I definitely recommend ocean front. We did not use the pool but it is very cool looking at night.

Cabanas Tulum appeared to be a pefect pick for us. There are tens of small hotels/cabanas along Tulum beach. Based on the view from the beach and road side, Cabanas Tulum seems to be one of the best or simply the best choice. It is wonderful, informal, perfectly located on a tropical-looking beach, and, yes, romantic. The neigboring El Bistro adds value. We travelled in late September which is off season. It is very quite there at this time and we liked it. Front desk (Sandi, Pati, and Mayumi - thank you!) was very helpful with any need we had (trips, transportartation).

Room Tip: If you can afford it, a beach side room offers gorgeous view.

Traveling with Mexicans in the Playa del Carmen area is the way to go when looking for authentic experiences. We took off exploring and found the beach hotel strip of Boca Paila. El Bistro called to us so we parked and found ourselves in the middle of one of the longest white sand beaches we have been too with hammocks and tables and outdoor beds in front of small caps of the Caribbean. Happy hour seems to be any hour and our server was gracious with 2 for 1 "Micheladas" (your beer with a unique mix of worcestershire, lime and other ingredients, wine and blended Margaritas making for a relaxing afternoon on silk smooth white sand. Walking the beach is easy and gorgeous with the waves lapping. We returned to a delicious meal of "Peruvian" (with grouper fish) and Mexican (with shrimp, octopus and squid) limed ceviches and chips; delicious. The fish tacos were terrific and the mixed grilled seafood for 2 with shrimp, octopus, fish, calamari outstanding with either chips or tortillas. All for all a memorable day and we can't wait to return and next time spend the night as the hotel gets great recommendations by others.

Room Tip: We stayed on the beach for the day but all the rooms are on beach directed toward the water. The foo...

Our experience at Cabanas Tulum was way beyond our expectations. From the moment we walked up Pati was extremely kind and helpful and continued to be throughout the week. The room was top notch with an beautiful ocean view. Emilio and Rosa provided the best service you could ask for at El Bistro the entire week. I'd highly recommend Cabanas Tulum to anyone even vaguely thinking about visiting Mexico. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for a deluxe or superior room.

We have been to Tulum several times and are always drawn back to Cabanas Tulum. It has been around since 1972 and has modernized every aspect of the hotel. We have stayed in the deluxe ocean-view which are nicely updated and near the adults only pool but love the Superior ocean=front the best. The furnishings are minimalistic, the views are anything but. Step out onto your balcony or patio just 50 feet from the waves and swing in your hammock. Breakfast is complimentary and it is so awesome. Try the Energetico juice drink and the Moltulenos, you won't be disappointed. Every afternoon is happy hour 2 for 1, all drinks. The beach is the best we have found. The water actually bubbles onmost days due to the cenotes that open into the shallow water just off shore. Great place to snorkel, always tons of fish that feed from the mineral rich cenote. Wonderful, romantic, relaxing experience.

Room Tip: The upper level of the superior rooms have awesome views of the beach and stars at night

We loved it! The location is perfect right on the beautiful beach of Tulum. The room is lovely (especially the delux rooms on the second floor, not the superior!), staff are freindly and helpfull, breakfast is amazing, eat it as a lunch and don't waste any more time on food untill the sunset.
Go there, you will love it.
